Infographic stats are surprisingly unsurprising!

League of Legends -- lots of buzz, little stats. That changes today, with the second annual releasing of the League of Legends infographic. Like last year, Riot Games has put out a graphical representation containing numerous stats about the game. It's always entertaining to see the oddball, or the surprisingly dominant stat about a game. Here, many of the statistics build off of what was shared last year, though.

Much of it relates to user base and gameplay time. I think the most interesting tidbit is the frequency of "pentakills," which is when one player kill every single player on the other team in a very short span of time. Most disturbing is that less than 10% of the player base is female! I think something needs to be done to change that.

Also a returning statistic is how often the champion Teemo dies per second. Spoiler alert, it's not any less than a year ago! You can check out the full infographic below, and check out League of Legends as well at the game's website.

I don't play League of Legends and I'm not sure that I ever will, but this "A New Dawn" cinematic is pretty damn cool, regardless. You don't need to know the game or its characters to enjoy it. Graves' eyebrow raise at around 3:19? Perfect.
